[Exclusive] Former Head of Block B′s Former Agency Found Dead on May 20
The former agency head of Block B′s former agency was found dead at his home after committing suicide on May 20.
A source close to the deceased told enews on May 21, "[The former agency head] Mr. Lee committed suicide in the basement of his home on May 20. He was found dead by a friend, and the wake is currently underway."
The wake started at a hospital in Seoul since the evening of the day he was found dead. The coffin will be borne out on May 22.
Mr. Lee gathered much attention as an important official in the charges Block B had brought against its agency.
On January 3, the group had filed for the cancellation of its contract against Stardom Entertainment. Block B had asserted that Stardom had failed to pay it a year′s worth of profits, and that Mr. Lee had received 70 million won from the members′ parents and disappeared.
Stardom Entertainment, however, had countered that it had never failed to pay the members, and that there was a mastermind behind the members.
It seems Mr. Lee came to kill himself as he suffered while the case continued to go on.
A family member told enews, "We have nothing to say."
